He is exciting and a fantastic athlete with a huge upside, but that is the problem--at this point it is upside until he becomes not just an elite athlete but an elite QB.
I can see your point. In thinking through my list, I went with potential on Vick and though I would throw in his name as a can't miss if he lives up to his potential.
